Cellular Automata Hardware Implementations - an Overview

ABSTRACT: Cellular automata model grew very popular decades ago with software applications like the Game of Life. From the computing theory’s perspective, it is a fundamental model of massive parallelism and was believed to offer extremely efficient solutions for hardware implementations. This paper overviews scientific literature and presents existing implementations of cellular automata, either in general form or dedicated for specific applications. The model is still considered to be very interesting and was proved to be efficient for applications like modeling of complex phenomena and implementation of encryption systems and randomizers. However, the hardware versions of cellular automata are still belonging to the academic realm, as they did not reach the industry and are not available as commercial products.
